The virus was discovered in Mexico on May 16 in a dead crow in Tabasco State. Mexico's animal health authority said the disease had since spread to horses in the states of Chihuahua, Tamaulipas, Coahuila, Veracruz, Tabasco, Quintana Roo and Yucatán. No human deaths have been reported. The authorities have asked horse owners to vaccinate their animals.
